Chris Jericho is finally opening up about his backstage altercation with Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam … as well as confirming that Randy Orton sustained a concussion at the PPV.
Jericho appeared on You’re Welcome with Chael Sonnen and was very open about the real-life incident when the MMA fighter inquired … saying, “I just thought the finish of that match was very brutal and very violent, and I just didn’t know if Randy was ok.”
“I said something and he said something, next thing you know we’re nose-to-nose kinda yelling at each other and it diffused fairly quickly.” Y2J adds, “Brock is a trained fighter and he’s a beast, but I’m not the type of person to back down from anybody.”
The RAW Superstar noted that the finish of Lesnar’s match was none of his business … however, he explained, “When I see a friend of mine lying in a pool of his own blood, whether it’s a work or not, that’s real blood. That’s a real concussion that he suffered. So I wanna go check and see if he’s ok.”
